john kerry. rice is making the rounds on capitol hill these days meeting with lawmakers who are critical of the comments that she made about the terror attack in benghazi that killed four americans. those meetings did not go very well or so it would seem from the comments from senators afterwards. senator kerry seems to be taking a different approach, staying out of the spotlight. asking supporters not to overtly lobby on his behalf. who is likely to get the job? angela mcglowan, fox news political analyst, marjorie clifton a arm toer consultant with the obama campaign and principal with clifton consulting. interesting thing, if there are to be, let's say president obama nominates susan rice and she is said to be his first choice. the guy who leads the hearings on the foreign affairs committee would be senator kerry. >> yeah, no, it is the irony of it all. kerry strategy staying under the radar probably is a good one. the only thing i think would be a barrier to susan rice's nomination would be the benghazi coverage one could argue is pretty unfair given all she did read a u

susan rice and john kerry. you can look at the politics on either way. boy you can't back down on this opposition, on the other hand, is this a fight he wants to have? >> to have a nomination fight over secretary of state is really an unusual and shocking thing. and so, i think that, probably in the end, he doesn't do it. but i do think that it is -- but he, again, he put her in this position and then -- then she gets the opposition and then he says, well, i can't name you. it's unfair. maybe in the end, he realizes that. >> well, i don't think we should link whether or not she -- what happened in benghazi and whether she gets the nomination. i would hate to conclude that the reason she doesn't get that nomination is because of this stuff that just happened. they're not necessarily connected. i just want to -- >> talk radio is just full of benghazi. it is a big issue. >> which is amazing to me. in 1982, we lost 241 marines in lebanon and the country came around president reagan, you didn't see all of this partisan bickering -- >> wait. wait a minute. >> -- we came together and

you think the president should choose? >> i think he is going to pick john kerry. i don't like the guy. what he did after the vietnam is disgraceful. he lost badly in 2004. 145 days after he gets picked. massachusetts has to have a special election for next u.s. senator and that will be scott brown. >> heather: and his name is being thrown around also as secretary of state. >> it's interesting. i'm not so sure because of the senator brown issue, i'm not so sure the president is going to go for senator kerry for in any position. >> i was going to say that i think he is said set on susan rice. susan rice has gone along with benghazi, if we're nice to radical islamists we can all hold hands. he wants to push that through because he thinks he can do anything. >> heather: i have to tell you i -- i totally agree with you analysis of susan rice. i don't think she is great person for the john but i disagree with you with why. >> the new c.i.a. director will have to contend with a growing world instability and world threats and boosting the reputation of the agency. what do you think the presid
of state, hillary clinton, defense and cia. and if the president does not choose susan rice that means john kerry goes to state and hagel goes to defense. if he chooses kerry for state then you could end up having hagel go to cia. we just don't know right now. but all of those names are in play as we talk. >> this wouldn't be his first republican secretary of defense as well. bob gates. all right, george. very interesting. >> thanks, george. >>> and don't miss george's interview with treasury secretary geithner. later this morning on "this week." >>> now to the all-out search for a cancer patient in arizona, take a look at this surveillance video, it shows a young girl being taken out of the hospital by her parents. her doctors say that the girl could die if she's not found immediately. >> reporter: this morning, phoenix police still on the lookout for an 11-year-old cancer patient whose life may be in danger after her mother snatched her from the phoenix children's hospital wednesday without doctors knowing. >> yes, i'm the health supervisor at phoenix children's hospital. >> okay. >> we h

. >> what about john kerry? you met with john kerry. >> i also met with susan rice. i've known john kerry for many years. >> what were those meetings like? >> good. thorough, deep. yeah. someone who has been ob this issue for a long period of time. he visited the region quite often. >> you think kerry would make a good secretary of state? >> he's been -- whatever it is he did. and i have reason to believe that he would definitely perform exceptionally well in that position. >> speaking of senators, there are some people on capitol hill who say one of their major concerns is whether now with this new status you will go to the international criminal court and, for example, try to cite israel for war crimes. can you say categorically you won't do that? >> what i can say is i think it really is very important to use what happened yesterday as a building block toward doing that which susan rice was talking about yesterday. yes, by virtue of putting a button it's not going to happen. but it's the same forum that have given israel that birth certificate some 65 years ago. and that's exactly what
of the child and not look at the wonderful gift that every child is. >> after the treaty was voted, john kerry said, i quote, this is one of the saddest days i've seen in almost 28 years in the senate. it needs to be a wake-up call about a broken institution letting down the american people. we need to fix this place. today he addressed mr mr. santorum's claims. >> i have great respect for both rick and his wife karen, his daughter and his family. he's a strong family man. but he either simply hasn't read the treaty or understand it or he was just not factual in what he said, because the united states has absolutely zero, zero, i mean zero ability, to order or to tell or to -- i mean, they can suggest but they have no legal capacity to tell the united states to do anything under this treaty. nothing. >> tonight many disability rights advocates are saying politics trump the welfare of the disabled everywhere. seven-term democratic congressman of rhode island is among many supporters of the u.n. treat yshg the first quadriplegic person to serve in the u.s. house. before yesterday's vote he talke

? >> large one. there is a happy senior senator from massachusetts right now. john kerry, who is considered also in the running for secretary of state. the why i see it, susan rice had two auditions. the original audition, five sunday talk shows where the famous talking point controversy emerged. that didn't go well. now a second audition meeting with the important republican senators, including susan colins from maine who is not a tea party dye in the wool die-hard red meat conservative who said i have more concerns now after the meeting than before. i think her nomination has not begun. it's in trouble. >> so that point, she had rehearsal over the long career. it hasn't just been two months. she has had a long career in the foreign service. she worked in the clinton administration. she has done a good job in this administration. so i think to minimize her career down to two months is a mistake. >> shannon: but they are obviously -- she is under oath and there will be questions that haven't been asked before that some will be -- >> including for broad sweep of that career. we should rememb
to understand this is not anybody's treaty, it's not president obama's treaty, it's not john kerry's treaty, it's not even bob dole's treaty, although he certainly is a person who has been deeply involved. the vote on the treaty is the right thing to do on its merits. i think that it's important to note that every major veterans' group -- madam president, i ask that the list of the veterans' groups in support be included in the record at this time. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. mccain: i've not forgotten that 36 republicans signed a letter opposing consideration of any treaty during the lame duck, but there's no reason why we shouldn't have a vote on this. the letter says that they would oppose consideration, but we did have the motion to proceed. some may be worried about passing a treaty in a lame-duck session. the argument has no basis in the constitution or the senate practice. since the 1970's alone the senate has approved treaties during lame-duck sessions a total of 19 times. there's nothing special or different about lame-duck sessions. i'd like to address a few of the m
and the price that's paid and who showed real, extraordinary political courage. nsenator john kerry, another vietnam war veteran, stood up for him. what a disappointment. what a disappointment that the united states senate, which on a bipartisan basis passed the americans with americans with disabilities actamericans withdn the 90 votes 22 years ago, whih would not infringe on our freedoms in any way, that we couldn't pass that on the are senate floor. what a sad testament to what has happened to the united states senate in the last two decades that a man like bob dole would witness this. i'm sure it broke his heart. it broke mine, too. i went out afterward and saw the disabled gathered in the lobby out here. many of them were crying. they couldn't believe it. at a time in america when we are giving the disabled chances they've never had, opportunities they've deserved for decades and generations, that we would turn down this convention on disabilities here. it was a sad moment in the history of the united states senate. that only eight republicans would join every democratic senator in vot
